They are not the kind of rides you’d take kids on at the Northwest Washington Fair, but the rodeo cowboys competing Tuesday night provided plenty of excitement for fans.

Allen Boore of Axtell, Utah, leads the saddle bronc riding competition after scoring 83.5 points on Rock Star, provided by C5 Rodeo. Austin Foss of Terrebonne, Oregon is in first place among bareback riders and Lon Danley of Tularoosa, New Mexico leads the bull riding competition.

Total payoff for the competitors was $55,733.

The Lynden PRCA Rodeo wrapped up Wednesday night. The fair runs through Saturday.
